"Wow, this bacteria survived some really harsh conditions. Let's take it back to the minimally secured lab to test it and see what gives. What could possibly go wrong?"
But if I have a gun, it'll take a lot more than one chimp to cause trouble for me.
Rather gives new meaning the the phrases "You're digging your own grave" and "Oh, go screw yourself" doesn't it?

PC gaming is not going anywhere. It's *different* than console gaming.
1. Computers don't go obsolete like consoles do
2. A keyboard & mouse > controller
3. Console games tend to be more visceral; they're about fast, furious fun. Computer games tend to be more ponderous and strategic; this is partly due to differences in the control schemes of course (a keyboard granting you many more key shortcuts, for example)
We should seriously stop giving attention to these "OMG TEH PC IZ DED" articles; they're a cheap grab for attention, nothing more. The market has plenty of room for schools of gaming.
They do that because the body is larger target and less likely to move than the head. The follow up headshot is A) to take advantage of the target's disorientation at getting shot twice and B) to take them out even if they were wearing body armor.

I'm still getting used to this "Nested" view...
How, pray tell, would cutting NASA's limited funding do anything useful?
It's retards like you that will delay us from ever leaving this rock. News flash: It's dying. We need to launch into space at some point in the next century or we're screwed. It's not going to be a "HAY GUYS LETS BUILD A ROCKET AND GO" endeavor. It will be a long, ponderous process, with many steps.
Really, has it come to this? Slashdot is so desperate for anti-MS stories now that it really has resorted to just scraping the bottom of the barrel?
It's spelled M$.
I blame this ridiculous "Cloud computing" craze. If it worked poorly in the 60s, why in the hell would we want to go back to it? The move towards thick clients is the only reason all the security breaches and viruses haven't been as bad as they could have. Storing all your eggs in one basket is just a stupid, stupid idea given the current situation of the world today.
Oh, and no more Ubisoft games for me. I don't support stupid ideas.
Since when does Hollywood run Windows?
Turning bone into wood is fairly redundant, yes?
